Berry Gordy has now come full circle after an accomplished music career. Previewing March 12, "Motown: The Musical," is coming to the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. This presents the ups and downs of Gordy's career.
Most likely it will be my last major endeavor in a creative way," he said in a telephone interview. "Of course everyone disagrees with me when I say that statement. This is probably the epitome of everything I've done _ that I've wanted to do."
Gordy himself is co-producing the show and helped deliver both its book and three original songs for the production. The team includes actors Valisia LeKae who plays Diana Ross and Brandon Victor Dixon who plays Berry Gordy.
While there is a large amount of backstory with the Motown story, music is at the forefront of the show. See "Motown: The Musical" at the Lunt-Fontanne, 205 W. 46th Street, New York, NY 10036 Monday to Saturday.
